DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN I met my boyfriend I knew he was going through a divorce, but it’s taking forever and I don’t know whether I can or should wait for him.
He promises we’ll be together soon but there’s always a new complication, and I’m getting impatient.
I’m 30 with no ties and he’s 35 with two children.
He and his ex can’t agree on anything – money, the kids, the house.
Plus he’s still living with her because he can’t afford to move out.
We get on brilliantly and talk every day and we have great sex.
He says he likes me, but he’ll understand if I can’t wait for him, or if I meet someone else.

I don’t know what to do.
Is it stupid to wait?

DEIDRE SAYS: Nobody can predict the future. Divorces can take a long time and you can’t wait indefinitely.
Perhaps you should set yourself a time limit, say three months, and then if things haven’t changed, make a decision to end the relationship.

However, saying he’d understand if you met someone else does sound like he’s being non-committal.
